Writings on Art 2006–2021 by Robert Storr
The much-anticipated second volume of Robert Storr's lucid, insightful chronicles of modern and contemporary art.
Following the success of Writings on Art 1980–2005, HENI presents the highly anticipated final volume to complete a two-volume collection of writings on art by Robert Storr, one of the world's leading art critics and curators.
Featuring the best of Robert Storr's criticism—reviews, essays and articles, many of which are previously unpublished—from 2006 to the present day, the book includes his texts on artists such as Gego, Carrie Mae Weems, David Hammons, Jenny Holzer, Jasper Johns, Deborah Kass, Gerhard Richter, El Anatsui and Francesco Clemente. Written with his signature intellect and wit, his writings range from essays on performances of femininity in Cindy Sherman's photographic oeuvre to dialectics of race in the work of Kara Walker.
Expertly curated from his prolific output, and illustrated with 175 images to accompany 51 texts, Writings on Art is the definitive collection of Storr's multifaceted writing with his finger on the pulse of contemporary art—a must-read for curators and students, artists, exhibition-goers and all those interested in the art and culture of today.
